A Day Of Love and Happiness

My dears, your Valentine's day wishes worked as magic for me, because we had an enjoyable and a happy day. I hope yours was the same and even better! I have many things to share with you today, so make a cup of tea or coffee for yourself and get ready for my V's day's adventures :)
That was one of those days when only good things happen. Here I want to say a BIG Thank You to dear Tanya from Bead and Needle! I don't know why I deserved this, but she wished to send me a small gift, which reached my house within a week, all the way from US to India! Unbelievable! Not only she is a versatile blogger, who always shares her interesting trips,she is also a wonderful crafter! Yes, you are ;) Thanks for these beautiful potholders in such lovely fabrics!
The potholders were packed in this lovely paper. I opened the parcel when my D came back home. He knew I was waiting for it to come so I wanted to share my happiness with him of course.
My D liked Tanya's gift very much too; when I said that she made it all herself, he kept on asking how she managed to overlap fabrics in such manner, I said I had no idea, but it was an artist's secret :)
A gift of a friend is precious, moreover, the distance is not an issue ( I know it by own love story ) when you really wish something with the whole heart. This fabric made me smile. I'm sorry, Tanya, they are too good to use them, but I will definitely decorate one of the dinner tables with them some day :)
My husband doesn't gift me flowers every day, otherwise it would have become boring, but when it's my B'day or V's day, or any other romantic reason, he always brings some cute bouquet. Like this one :) He said that flower sellers refused delivering it straight to my office, because they had too much work load anyway. So my D went, I know that hurriedly, to buy this roses in the evening, mystically disappearing from the house for about 20 min while I was making tea for him. He is so clever and... so sweet :) A remark: today is 2 years and 8 months of our marriage, yes, we count months too, as we don't want to lose any of such special day for both of us. I read a very beautiful and inspiring post at Mrs. Micawber's blog. How to keep love through ages, how to stay with your loved one no matter what, we shall learn from such stories :)      now...
A good evening was on our cards. We went to the City heart, sector 17,  for a walk. It was crowded there, and I didn't feel like taking the pictures. But what I wanted to show was the Indian New Moon, which is reversed.
I will not be telling you about all our roaming in the city in search for a restaurant, because all of them were literally packed, and the wait time they were giving us was minimum 1 hour... However even this was pleasant because we were together and when I'm with my D, I enjoy every moment of our time. Finally, we ended up in sector 17 again when my D drove there from another side, where there were few good restaurants. Yey! We chose the one called "Ghazal". Ghazal is a poetic form originated from Arabic verse. 
 Though my D had doubts for a second, later he liked the place very much, so did I. It was exotic for both of us because of its interior and the ghazal songs filling the air with their relaxing and melancholic tune.
We weren't disappointed with the menu as well.. and now the moment of temptation - our dinner. It was delicious - chicken shashlyk sizzler, paneer lababdar, rotis, and pickles!
 We left this nice place around 11 in the night. This is the entrance. You can see an Urdu word from the right side of the picture meaning "the pub". I thought we would take here my parents when they visit India next time.
 I liked being out at late hour... It was quiet, and deserted, but we were together and no matter what, we were happy. We are (touch wood).
I hope you liked experiencing these moments with me. I'm glad I have all of you, dears, who are always ready to support, encourage and simply be happy for me
Have a happy weekend filled with love! Blessings to all of you wherever you are.

  8. Hi Anna, your bouquet of roses is BEAUTIFUL!! Your meal looks delicious and it seems like you had a wonderful day. I love that you are still celebrating the months in your marriage - we are like that too, and we've been married for nearly 6 years now and it just never gets old :) I love such romantic gestures.
    And your gift from Tanya is the best! She makes such cute things and you're right, they are way too cute to use. They're perfect to be out on display for everyone to see and admire though :)
    Have a lovely weekend xx

  15. Hi love! I am sorry it took me so long to get back to you! I got so busy with my hubby sick, making teas and soups and chasing him around for vapor rub(he is such a baby about it!).
    I laughed so much with your Harry Potter comment. Me and my husband we do a lot of love spells especially for our annual handfasting ceremonies. He is not pagan but he loves participating. We will be making that potion on our next anniversary - handfasting minus the blood of course! You should try that if your hubby is okay with it, it is very yummy, honey and red wine what could be better?)

    1. Hiii! I hope your hubby is okay now, i'm sure he is after your care :)
      I need to ask my husband if he is fine with different such rituals...but wine with herbs and honey is certainly a good drink!:)
